Alright, Night Two! I just want to congratulate those who were able to make it through the first night, but this is where things get a little more intense. As usual, let's try to keep things chill because that's the only way we're gonna get through this. That and some libation.
In an effort to see if this series reads the least bit better in chronological order, it's time for the Hit-Girl mini. Be prepared as we delve into the mind of everyone's favorite tyke sized murderous power-house. And the beginning of something big. Come along if you want, best wishes if not.
Now then let's get in the mood to kick some ass.
Kick-Ass Book Two: The Diary of Hit-Girl
And here we go...
1. I have NO idea what that cover is all about.
2. Get ready for the most amazing dialogue anyone's ever given 11 year olds.
This takes place right between Kick-Ass and Kick-Ass 2.
And this is, honestly, a pretty nice cold open.
You all have painted quite the picture, I'm sure.
Oh Thurman Rice, also known as the Silver Beetle...
Just not your lucky night.
Also, could have been more polite with your passing. Ruined that man's shoes.
Big Daddy was not... the sanest of men.
This is probably the first time I've ever seen "whore" and "Dora the Explorer" ever put so close to each other.
It's all been "deep end", Kick-Ass.
Always has been.
This has transcended normal bitchiness at this point.
Do what Big Daddy did.
Run away and start a new life.
You can see the family resemblance.
Also, the second panel has one of the most salient lines of the series.
All in a hero's day of work, Kick-Ass.
I'm pretty sure he's had a winter hat on at least once.
That's just messed up right there,
Read about in medical journals perhaps.
Red Mist has not taken the death of his father all that well.
They're definitely not alpha high school class bitchy I'll say that.
wherein Kick-Ass is out of his weight class.
Kick-Ass is the nerdiest pimp in town
"The weather's fine!"
Well, I was sorta jokin' last night, but I guess Big Daddy actually did hold "quip lectures"
I think there's an app for that Hit-Girl
Kick-Ass on his down time may be the most boring secret identity ever.
As Azoth the Avenger once said, comics always skip the good parts.
Also, don't worry Mr. Lizewski.
He's still doing some real stupid stuff.
Did all of their assistants not catch this error?
Let's just get through this one and worry about the terrors of Kick-Ass 2 for tomorrow.
Kick-Ass you complete ass, how could you mess that up!
Kick-Ass is flailing with style.
And you'd have though he'd learned that his approach didn't quite work the last time around.
Somehow I don't quite believe her.
Let it be known:
Red Mist had Kick-Ass (and I quote) shouting his name, his favorite color, his crush on Leeza Gibbons... and he forgot.
What a guy.
wherein fitting in isn't the issue
And two more nights to go!
Alright, I can't lie, there's one thing I actually do like in this arc...
How much of a complete and utter idiot Red Mist is in this.
We'll get to know more of these two rad and happenin' dudes later on.
Good luck with all that Red Mist.
Alright, that was just... wooo that was just something.
Also, Marty (not Toddy anymore) has the better idea.
Daredevil also has mad skills. And Kick-Ass does not.
He really was the perfect actor. Just think that they made the character a bit too cozy at times.
Now that just requires unneeded effort.
Insect Guy I really only remember because of the film. I almost thought he was made for the film for a while before I remembered.
That's just drug dealer 101, Hit-Girl.
Wow, she totally missed her chance to say "Game over motherfuckers" like she told Kick-Ass.
I dunno, him being overly "cozy" just added to the fact that he was basically turning his daughter in a killing machine.
Like everything he did was out of pure fatherly love, and I'm pretty conviced that was the genuine reason, even more than revenge.
wherein this cover is just the worst.
Yeah, no, I totally get it. Just personally would have liked a bit more gruffness. But that's just a personal thing.
This? Nah, not the worst. The worst is tomorrow.
Well this is the direct sequel to the first mini, so I guess that makes this a necessary read.
Ferris Bueller she is not.
You make quite the point.
Nope, ripped straight from the page.
I would not say organically. The Marcus stuff? For sure. But the Hit-Girl stuff was done for the worse in the movie, and is my one main gripe about the movie.
But you kinda knew that Marcus.
Meant the bottom half of this >>64394015 for >>64393961
They did manage to make Dave, Mindy, and Chris' stories parallel one another's really well. For example Dave joins a Justice Forever, Chris starts recruiting thugs, and Mindy joins the popular girl clique at roughly the same time.
Hit-Girl runs that shit.
Structurally, oh yeah agreed. I just didn't see the need to conclude the popular girl subplot in that way. Too cheezy and not that funny.
Vic's shoes should have had their own subplot.
Best scene in the series, personally.
Should have checked the "learn different languages" off first from your to do list, Red Mist.
And they don't even know she's Hit-Girl!
This... this ain't gonna end well.
wherein that would just be too easy.
Right in the goddamn tunk
Yeah, the retcon wasn't necessary, but it did give Jim Carrey a good line so it balanced out. And yeah, Justice Forever was great in the movie.
Kinda weird place to ask for that dude.
That's what SoPs are all about.
Again, weird thing to ask.
Yeah, Hit-Girl is not all there.
What else is new?
Needed more precautions, Ralphie.
Now these bullets are just going to go to waste.
Not sure that's exactly how that works.
But she probably learned everything from a textbook Big Daddy wrote.
Oh hey, another scene that i thought was made up. Guess they did their best to adapt this and KA2 into a movie.
Just kidding, they did their worst. Even if the Evil Dick scene was just goofy.
Well who are those handsome devils.
I liked the KA2 movie a lot except for the HG scenes and outside making KA 3 unrecognizable. It was a good rendition of Kick-Ass
These are the last pages.
At least he got ONE hit in.
Maybe he can go up against Kick-Ass' sticks now.
Maybe next time old man.
She has her work cut our for her.
No problem. You won't be thanking me after tomorrow.
THE REVENGE OF RED MIST!
See you then.
At least they're acknowledging that JRJR was bored out of his mind and couldn't even draw full pages. Man, there's some panels where you can see it's all inks and colors over barely sketched pencils.
>Fox News in 1980s Scotland
Sure thing, anon.
I think the popular girl shit was just thrown in in order to justify Hit-Girl being that much older, because Chloe can't pass the part anymore.
Not that it wasn't handled terrible, just that I understand why it's there.
Kick-Ass 2 is Part 3 and that's tomorrow.
It's... the darker and more serious sequel.
Which is saying something for this series.
Kick-Ass 3 (Part 4) is a return to basics.
>DID SOMEBODY ORDER A FUCKING SANDWICH?
I will now incorporate this is in my regular vocabulary.
I'm saying that they're not for everyone. Doing a SoP banner keeps everything copasetic. I like bits of it, but there are a lot of parts where you just gotta laugh.
Because it's MST3K levels of enjoyable.
